Plot Summary
Office workers must comply with the deadly requests of an unknown captor
Director
This may well be the smartest slasher flick ever made. That said, it is still a slasher flick. So, if you aren't into horror films, or you can't handle gruesome violence, you should go ahead and cross this one off your list and never think of it again.

For those of you that do enjoy 90 minutes of mayhem, you should run to the theater as fast as you can. You will be treated to something that I can only describe as a mashup of LORD OF THE FLIES, THE HUNGER GAMES, and OFFICE SPACE.

The writers set up a scenario that is probably very close to how things would happen if this situation were to occur in real life. At one point there are dozens of employees trying to decide if they should kill a certain number of their co-workers, or if they should just let the unknown captor kill twice as many. Obviously, in that scenario there would be a lot of passionate debate.

This film does a magnificent job of showing the compassionate side most people have for innocent life, but also the at-the-end-of-the-day-I'm-the-only-one-that-matters monster lurking just beneath the surface and willing to do whatever it takes at the slightest hint of conflict.

It is a film that will make you think and make you uncomfortable. It also makes you question how you would react in the same situation.

If you can handle the violence and the uncomfortable feelings that come along with this film you will enjoy how unique and intriguing this movie is.
